(WND News Center) – Some of America’s smartest men, including Robert Kiyosaki, investment guru and author of the personal finance book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” have some choice words for President Joe Biden’s executive order 14067. It would behoove you to listen to them.
Kiyosaki called Biden’s signed executive order “the most treasonous act in U.S. history” and the creation of Central Bank Digital Currencies, or CBDC, as “communism in its purest form,” encouraging Americans to “stay awake.”
He is joined by Jim Rickards, another economist, investor, and former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) official who is calling it a step toward the end of cash, the greenback, in circulation since the Founding Fathers. The new “digital tokens” can be “turned off” if the government doesn’t like what you are doing.
Rickards, who has four decades of experience on Wall Street, criticized CBDC and labeled it as “Bitcoin’s Evil Cousin.” He also exposed the supposed singular event called C-Day which, according to him, will take place on December 13, 2022, and will disrupt the traditional financial systems in the U.S.
He said when what he calls “C-Day” happens, paper money would be worthless and the U.S. dollar would crash. He further added that consumer spending and access to basic needs would also be restricted, and people holding too much money would be penalized.
Executive order 14067, titled “Ensuring Responsible Development of Digital Assets,” includes developing policy plans and the organization of federal regulators. “Any future dollar payment system should be designed in a way that is consistent with United States priorities … and democratic values, including privacy protections, and that ensures the global financial system has appropriate transparency, connectivity, and platform and architecture interoperability or transferability, as appropriate.”
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has officially crossed a line by weaponizing the FBI to target America’s most influential conservative leader — former president Donald Trump, a private citizen — without due process and with obvious political bias.
SIGN this petition to FBI Director Christopher Wray - condemn this blatant political policing againt former President Trump.
This single act has sent an unmistakable signal that anyone who holds a dissenting political belief from the leftist regime can have his or her life ruined by the Deep State — forcing them to defend themselves from a faceless FBI attack-arm of the federal government.
The FBI just proved that Donald Trump was right. He’s always been right.— Benny Johnson 🍊 (@bennyjohnson) August 9, 2022
No one will ever forget this.
We cannot stand for the complete corruption and weaponization of America's law enforcement, and especially not the FBI. We must stand united, bold, and patriotic — in the name of liberty, the rule of law, and American Greatness.
SEND A BOLD MESSAGE TODAY: WE ABSOLUTELY CONDEMN THE DESPICABLE FBI RAID ON A PRIVATE AMERICAN CITIZEN — AND WE WILL NOT STOP FIGHTING FOR AMERICA FIRST!
This kind of weaponization of federal agencies against private citizens who hold a dissenting worldview is seen only in third-world countries.
This is exactly why Americans must use their voices and shout even more loudly that this country is worth saving from the ideologues on the radical left who care only about power and control.
We won’t know how fully insane the FBI raid on Trump is until we see the warrant and warrant application. But after Russiagate – years of investigation predicated largely on Clinton campaign misinformation -- if the basis for this isn’t bedrock-solid, there should be hell to pay.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) August 9, 2022
Destroying 30K classified emails with a hammer and bleach doesn’t get your home searched. Remember that.— Erielle Davidson (@politicalelle) August 9, 2022
American patriots will continue standing in the way of the left's attempt at hostile takeover, and will always defend America from her enemies — both foreign and domestic.
SIGN NOW: Our Founding Fathers added their names to the Declaration of Independence, and now more than ever is it important to add your name to the growing list of patriots who uphold our inalienable rights and the promise of self-government.
The @FBI raid on President Trump was approved by Director Wray, who also claimed that the illegal FISA warrants used to spy on Trump were constitutional.— Rand Paul (@RandPaul) August 9, 2022
Today’s raid is outrageous and unjust, but predictable.
Stand up against the targeting of private American citizens from FBI raids - we refuse to back down!
P.S. — Nobody is safe from politically motivated attacks under the current DOJ. And with 87,000 new IRS agents joining the executive branch, the unaccountable federal government is only growing. Now is the time to push back before it’s too late! SIGN NOW AND STAND STRONG TOGETHER!
After todays raid on Mar A Lago what do you think the left plans to use those 87,000 new IRS agents for?— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) August 9, 2022
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a blog released last month that CBDCs can be a more effective solution compared to credit and debit cards, particularly in terms of energy efficiency.
“Depending on the specific details of how they are configured, CBDCs and some kinds of crypto assets can be more energy-efficient than much of the current payment landscape, including credit and debit cards,” the blog read.
Notes Rickards: “Thanks to Section 4 of Biden’s Executive Order 14067, calling for urgent research into developing the digital dollar, I believe the U.S. dollar, the standard of the world since 1792 … will be replaced by a new currency, the digital dollar.”
“I call the digital dollar ‘Biden Bucks’ because I want him to take full credit for what I consider to be crimes,” says Rickards. “This is not like the money in your online bank account … No, this is new and different. Every digital dollar will be a programmable token, like Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. But there’s a big difference … Cryptocurrencies are decentralized digital currencies. Instead, if it plays out the way I see it … Biden Bucks will have the full backing of the U.S. Federal Reserve. They will replace the cash (or fiat) dollar we have now. And will soon be the sole, mandatory currency of the United States.”
Kiyosaki agrees. But in this climate of fear Biden is creating – over the possibility of Donald Trump making a comeback – he has the Fed in his corner.
“When Biden Bucks are rolled out, many experts – myself included – believe they will begin an era of total government control and surveillance,” Rickards stated. “This is not hyperbole. This would dramatically expand the power and influence of the federal government … essentially acting as a new type of ‘spyware.’”
“With Biden Bucks,” he continued, “the government will be able to force you to comply with its agenda. Because if you don’t, they could turn off your money. This won’t be like freezing a bank account, it will be so much easier.”
Just think what this will mean if Biden gets his way – or whoever is behind this plot.
You want to keep your internal combustion engine car? Your digital dollars suddenly won’t pay for gas. You’ll be forced to buy an electric vehicle.
Rickards calls it “the tip of the fascist iceberg.”
“America would become a surveillance state like China or North Korea,” he says.
